August 4, 2012, is the 222nd Anniversary of the start of the United States Coast Guard. I spend 4 years in the Coast Guard, 39 month’s of which was on the United States Coast Guard Cutter Halfmoon (WHEC-378).
This picture is of the Halfmoon returning from our tour in Vietnam, with normal Naval tradition of a naval vessel returning from a war.
While we were on our tour, on this day in 1967, off of Vietnam, we celebrated the anniversary.
Snoopy was our ‘mascot’ for our tour.
So, Happy Birthday to the United States Coast Guard and for All of the men and women who served our country.
